Choosing a good university to study my Masters Degree has always been a great concern of mine. When looking into the top ranking Business Schools that provide leisure and hospitality courses, the University of Exeter Business School appealed to me straightaway for both its academic reputation and its friendly environment. The Business School also offers a wide range of scholarships to support and encourage students and I am lucky enough to be a recipient.
During my time at Exeter, I have had the chance to meet friends from all over the world and take part in many different activities. The diversity here has given me a better understanding of different cultures and I have to say that I am having one of the best times of my life, enjoying everything that the Business School offers me.
A particular highlight of my course has been the field trip we took to Dartmoor National Park in order to examine the concept of 'Sustainable Tourism'. This was a really enjoyable day and also a brilliant way to see the real world applications of what we learn in the lecture theatres.
There is a lot of support available here for students and I am very impressed by the teaching quality. All my lecturers are passionate about their modules and happy to give me help whenever I am in need. Notably, Dr Joanne Connell and Professor Tim Coles are two lecturers who have impressed me with their in-depth understanding of the tourism sector and with their willingness to support students. Dr Joanne Connell has also arranged several conferences with guest speakers that help us to expand our knowledge and our networks.
The Business School Career Zone holds many events, which are really helpful in preparing students with the necessary knowledge and skills to find employment. A wide range of information is provided regarding writing CVs, presentation skills and interview preparation.
I’m involved with the Student-Staff Liaison Committee, which allows me to represent my course mates and their opinions. I am very proud and grateful to be a part of the Committee and have the chance to meet other students and contribute to improving student experience at the University of Exeter."
